6:01pm
over his head so he can breathe. business mo do.com said he's been developing a psychedelic drug and that has led to a lot of questions about his behavior. >> the story getting stranger and stranger. joe, thanks. now we want to update you on a developing story out of contra costa county. a collision between a semi and car snarling rush hour traffic on highway 4. shortly before 5:00 a honda rear-ended the semi near air street -- a. street in antioch. the front end of the car was wedged underneath the truck. the truck spilled some of the canned goods it was carrying out on the roadway. then the truck caught fire. we do believe everybody got out okay. but one westbound lane has been closed for the last hour. that's created a long line of headlines. traffic stretching back for more than a mile. again highway 4. our traffic map shows even the eastbound lanes have been impacted. no time estimate on when the accident will be cleared but
6:02pm
we'll keep an eye on it and bring you the updates. the passage of a minimum wage law in san jose could have unintended consequences. not everyone is happy about more pay for the city's lowesterners. lynn? >> reporter: for the last few months we've been hearing from the backers of the minimum wage law this is the right thing to do for workers that $8 is not enough to live on in silicon valley but we spoke to workers today who said they would be financially hurt, not helped, by the affects of measure d. as a min women wage worker, this man will get an instant raise when measure d. takes effect next year. but he's not happy about it. >> i vote no for this. because i'm an american citizen now. >> ally, who can double his wages on tips, said measure d. will hurt him on the long run.
6:03pm
>> $2 not helping me. you go back, i was working 40 hours and now the boss will cut my hours, cut more people and unemployment will be high. >> reporter: it is what the business community calls the unintended consequences of the new minimum wage law. >> they plan to raise prices on the menu, cut hours, lay off some employees. >> nick said he and his partners figured out what their new payroll would be under measure d. and it is something they can't afford without making cuts. he said some of the 50 employees will lose a day of work for weeks and some part- time employees will be let go. >> our example was $4,000 every two weeks so that comes out to, we did the math, almost $100,000 a year. and we have to cut some hours just to make a profit. >> reporter: measure d. began in a sociology classroom at san jose state and grew into a coalition backed by organized labor. it was passed by 59% of the
6:04pm
voters, intended to help the lowest paid workers earn a decent living. backers say measure d. will help the entire community. >> the increased wages to those low wage workers are going to get spent here in san jose and that will cause an additional economic stimulus of almost $200 million for the city of san jose. >> reporter: and backers of measure d. also say that the restaurant industry has been making too much out of these price increases that people are likely to see on the menus. dana, according to study they commissioned, they say that on the average $30 bill would only cost an extra 25 cents because of measure d. >> lynn ramirez, thank you. well proposition 30 which raises taxes was passed by california voters last tuesday. grace lee shows us tonight, young voters were an important part of that prop 30. >> they sure were. and we're curious about which polls are right and wrong, and
6:05pm
before the election, field poll predicted those under the age, it might be up to 28% and that difference may get something to pass. >> billions more will come into schools if prop 30 passes. >> it was close, but in the final weeks leading up to the election, the governor was out front campaigning for proposition 30 seven days aaweek and -- aweek and apparently young voters were listening. it raises a sales tax by a quarter cents and raises taxes on the wealthy. they campaigned online and debated it on social media and lived with the threat of increased tuition and fewer classroom days. >> it is ridiculous. everyone is saying you have to vote. you have to vote on this.
6:06pm
>> on our ipads, our computers, so seeing posts telling you to vote is impressionable. >> the issues that young voters care about really spurred them to the polls. >> they know they have higher student loans, unemployment rates that are higher and i think they really got the message specifically to them where they are and it hit home. >> according to exit polls, voters under the age of 30 made up 28% of the electorate in california and out of those, a whopping two-thirds said yes to prop 30. >> you cannot face the future. >> a young california democrat said the youth vote is strong and its growing but it takes more tan just social media to sway them. >> this was a combination of online and on the ground strategy on college campuses, door to door, making phone calls, young people talking to young people and different groups of organizations that aren't necessarily young-youth focuses realize the importance
6:07pm
of our generation and what we could do. >> one more thing, the numbers suggest that marketing has become more efficient and young voters tended to move more than older people but now campaigns are finding them and clearly their message is getting through. allen? >> grace, thanks. checking bay area headlines, a traffic accident in contra costa caused a shooting. one man opened fire on the other. the cerebral palsy said the victim suffered a non-life- threatening injury and taken to the hospital. the shooter took off on foot. gunshots hit two houses in menlo park this morning. police found two high powered assault rifles, a semi- automatic handgun and drugs in one of the homes on medderra avenue. the gunfire didn't hit anyone, but police did arrest four

6:48pm
typically see but slightly warmer, but maybe 3-5 degrees. temperatures going to be mainly in the 60s. we could see a couple of low 70s and kind of a mix of sun and clouds, depending on where you are around the coast, bay or inland. so we're staying dry for it looks like tuesday through thursday. and this is the reason why. we got this area of low pressure but it is staying north of the bay area. so that means rain showers for far northern california, oregon, washington. but we're also watching this flat ridge. so it is keeping us high and dry through thursday it looks like. we could see a few clouds push through that. so expect to see more clouds roll in by tomorrow afternoon. pinpoint forecast, your overnight lows, here is what they look like. numbers, in oakland 48. 44 in concord. about 43 degrees in fairfield and santa rosa. and then overnight 50 degrees in san francisco. and again expected to stay dry but a few clouds will roll in overnight. your forecasted highs by tomorrow, we'll see a lot of 60s. mid-60s in san francisco.
6:49pm
67 around parts of the bay, like oakland. mid-60s in concord, 66 is your reading in fairfield and about 67 in santa rosa. so we have big changes straight ahead for the back half of the workweek. this is it. this is a look at the seven-day forecast. tuesday through thursday, we have a slight warming trend. not much, but we are going to stay dry. and then thursday night and into friday, that is when the bottom drops out and it looks like we get a little more unsettled. friday we have a good chance of rain. saturday mostly cloudy skies. and then on sunday and monday we got an even better chance of even heavier rain with highs only reaching into the mid-60s. that's a check of your pinpoint forecast. dennis has your sports right after this break.
